Runner Notes

This trail makes for a great run.

Description

From Devil's Thumb Trail, the bypass heads right up a short, steep pitch. At the top, the trail enters an open meadow that's generally full of wildflowers from July to August. Travel down the center of the meadow, alongside Jasper Creek and eventually the trail dives back into the woods and reconnects with Devil's Thumb Trail.
